I am sorry to say this, but this attitude is VERY wrong and ignorant. We all know that a $2 cable works exactly the same as a $2000 cable. Therefore, PLEASE go with the $2 cable and give the remaining $1998 to someone in need. There are MANY people who are fighting to get food, medical treatment, and other basic needs!

Happily, you're already living in it. The burden of proof lies upon those who claim there is a difference.


mbrennwa has the right idea - anyone who sells a $2000 cable is taking advantage of the overly credulous and is wasting resources.

I am not taking sides but I think that most of the above posts should be removed by a moderator. The reason for this is that the thread has been derailed by a generic, moralising comments, written by people with no direct experience of the product the subject of the thread. Such comments could be equally be made in relation to any product - eg it could have been made if the tube cost $1500, $1000, $400, $200, or $50. To be spending any money at all on a hobby could be seen as excessive when that money could be spent on people in need. I do not wish to engage in a discussion on this topic - i just want to simply show that this thread has been improperly derailed, and such a discussion should be held in another thread elsewhere covering the topic. This thread should be about the new tube, its technology, and any good or bad experiences from people with direct experience of the product (including on performance vs price).

When I posted, I did not realize this is a commercial sector. Please remove any of my posts above if the moderator feels my posts are inappropriate.

Fair enough, you make a good point Wansmith (although I do feel the term "generic" is disingenuous). Let me change tack:


Please post measurements comparing the regular 300B vs the molybdenum version along with the OPT used. The language used by vkung (and the 1000 Euro price increase) differentiating the two indicates there should be significant variances.

Wansmith, your point is well taken. However, I stand by my comments, as I truly feel offended for the reasons I mentioned. I leave it up to the moderators to take action and remove my posts if they I see a reason for this.

My motto is to offer goods and affordable products
I offer $35 Gold Lion ECC83. It is good and affordable. I also offer $1200 a piece ECC803.
It is up to the buyer to decide.

For ELROG, every time I need to wait at least three months to have the shipment. The supply is higher than demand .
It is ok for our discussion.

I wouldn't spend large amounts of money on a tube or cable. At least with the cables, though, they don't wear out after a time and need replacement as tubes inevitably do.

Big thanks to Victor Kung for making the Molybdenum version of Elrog available at such a huge discount compared to the list price. I also always enjoy reading omnipresent trolls. It is so cute how much they care for other people's money spent on cables.
